The Premier League's worst XI so far: Featuring Newcastle, Aston Villa stars

Newcastle United, Aston Villa, Liverpool and Arsenal stars have been among the worst performing of the Premier League season so far.

GK: Brad Guzan

The Aston Villa shot stopper has been shaky so far this season and his costly error against Chelsea sums up his campaign.

LB: Patrick van Aanholt

Sunderland's left-back has drawn ire from fans after poor performances both offensively and defensively.

CB: Fabricio Coloccini

Another Sunderland player Younes Kaboul has been worse but the Newcastle United captain has a responsibility to lead and has often failed miserably, despite the odd promising performance.

CB: Joleon Lescott

Another central defender in awful form so far this season. Aston Villa fans will be regretting Tim Sherwood's decision to bring him on board from West Brom.

RB: Steven Whittaker

The Norwich City defender has taken a battering from his fans, who want him dropped, and edges Branislav Ivanovic after Sunday's 6-2 defeat at Newcastle.

CM: Ashley Westwood

The third Aston Villa player in this team, supporters have had enough of the midfielder and feel incensed Sherwood has stuck by him.

CM: Cesc Fabregas

Nemanja Matic could have made this team but Chelsea's Fabregas has been worse as far more is expected of him in an attacking sense.

CAM: Roberto Firmino

The Liverpool summer signing could still turn his Anfield career around but, so far, it's not so good...

LW: Memphis Depay

Like a shadow of Anthony Martial: not very good at all for Manchester United.

RW: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Perhaps a harsh selection but the Arsenal winger has underwhelmed since his Community Shield exploits.

ST: Radamel Falcao

It doesn't look like the Chelsea loanee is destined for the Premier League in any way, shape or form...
